I cannot give enough praise to The Battleaxes! Me and my husband got married there last month and it was honestly perfect. Lotty, the wedding coordinator, is knowledgeable and professional. She was in close contact with us in the run up and there was no question too small that she answered punctually and clearly. Lotty is also extremely personable. She clearly makes a point of getting to know the couples who have decided to get married at The Battleaxes - we were delighted when she spent almost the whole day with us when we visited to taste the wedding menu and were totally reassured that there would be nothing for us to worry about on the day. As expected, the day itself went seamlessly and was amazing. The club room when prepared for the ceremony and wedding breakfast looked beautiful. The food exceeded all our expectations and a lot of the guests have commented on how great this was (one said she had the best brownie of her life :)). The best thing, however, was how fantastic all the staff working there were - smiley and helpful, and very patient with the guests who were quite lively! Our friends and family have commented on how relaxed the day felt and I think this is a result of the venue and all the staff. Also, we have visited and stayed at The Battleaxes on occasions other than our wedding and have found consistently the food to be great, the venue clean and the staff very lovely. So thank you to Lotty and her team who gave us the best start to married life :)

After having dinner here a few times, me and my partner really loved this place and decided it would be perfect for our wedding, and we were correct. Lotty, the wedding co-ordinator was fantastic from start to finish, always keeping us up to date with any changes or things to note, and always on hand to reply to any questions we had. The day itself was perfect, the rooms were lovely and the staff always helpful and really friendly with all the guests and their kids and the day went amazingly well. Would recommend to everyone, The Battleaxes is a firm favourite with us now. Many thanks to everyone.

weekend of magic
Just back from a weekend of magic, celebrating our daughter and new son-in-laws wedding with you. Cannot praise everyone involved highly enough, each and every member of staff were fantastic. We felt so relaxed and have made so many happy memories, thank you so much. Everyone attending commented on how lovely the setting was and the food was amazing too.

wedding at the Battleaxes! What an amazing venue the Battleaxes is...we knew when we visited for lunch one day that it was just perfect for a wedding. Having recently been redecorated, they really have paid attention to detail and taken care of every aspect of the venue. What really makes this the best venue is the quality of service that they offer. Lotty, our wedding coordinator was so accommodating and really took personalised service to the next level. She made us feel very comfortable with the entire process (which can be very stressful) and ensured everything ran smoothly on the day. To put this into perspective for you readers, Lotty even intervened to ensure a door wouldn't move with the wind blowing outside so there wouldn't be any interruptions to our wedding service! We really could not have asked for any more from Lotty, she truly did go above and beyond for us, for which we will be eternally grateful to her for how much she did for us.

vintage charm and rustic ambience
My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Battleaxes 2 weeks ago. We got married at Wraxall Church and then came over for the wedding breakfast and party. I don’t know where to start... it was A DREAM! From my amazing beautiful wedding co-ordinator Lotty who worked so hard, to the talented chef Dan, and everybody else who helped achieve our dream day. We really truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Staff were amazing and so friendly and hardworking. The food was outstanding and the venue was just perfect. Really intimate with the right amount of space, with lots of character. One of the many reasons why we chose it for its vintage charm and rustic ambience. We have had guests say the best wedding they have ever been too! For a wedding not overpriced either like some of the massive country houses yet you get outstanding food, quality and service all in one. We will definitely be back for more meals and hire out the venue for future events. Please don’t ever change!! Also the rooms are beautiful, lots of traditional decor, clean and lovely views of the hills and to include breakfast for £100. Great price. Highly recommend to have weddings here and other events 😊 thank you all so much. Mr and Mrs Leeson X
